Sept. 22 Update PM — Stroud will not carry an injury designation into Sunday’s matchup against the Jaguars and will be good to go.
Sept. 22 Update — The Texans revealed that Stroud is on an “arm management” plan during practice to prevent further issues with his shoulder.
Sept. 21 Update — Stroud was upgraded to a full practice participant on Thursday. Another full participation on Friday could see him heading into the weekend without an injury designation.
Houston Texans quarterback CJ Stroud was limited in Wednesday’s practice ahead of Week 3 with a right shoulder issue. Stroud passed for 384 yards and two touchdowns in the Texans’ Week 2 loss against the Colts. The Texans take on the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 3. He had the same designation on last week’s practice report, but was able to play the entire following game.
Fantasy football implications for Week 3
If Stroud is limited, backup Davis Mills will come in for him. This could affect the fantasy output of wide receivers Nico Collins, Tank Dell, and Robert Woods, as well as tight end Dalton Schultz. However, it seems unlikely that Stroud will be out at this point — after he had the right shoulder injury and “limited” designation on last week’s list, he went out and had one of the best passing games that any rookie QB has put together this season.
